Composed in 1911, this piece became widely known and performed throughout the English speaking world in its vocal and choral versions. The composer, Hugh Roberton, was the founder and conductor of the famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir in whose repertoire this song constantly featured. The song is a setting of words by Katharine Tynan. The wonderful melody is here presented in a new arrangement for string orchestra by Philip Lane. A recording of this arrangement is included on a compact disc of various music from Scotland issued on the ASV label.
